Mosquitos in the South during the summer months are no joke. Here are some ways to help limit or prevent itchy bites from these pesky critters. 

1) Use bug repellent. Don't hold back and spray it on proud, but do make sure it contains FDA-recommended ingredients like DEET.

2) Dress to protect. Wear long sleeves and pants to cover your arms and legs. 

3) Don't wear strong fragrances. Scented lotions and perfumes can attract mosquitoes left and right.

4) Keep your home sealed and protected. Make sure your windows have screens and your exterior doors are sealed to prevent mosquitoes from getting inside.

5) Dump out standing water. Mosquitoes love breeding in standing water, so dump out any water that has collected in rain gutters, buckets, flower pots, toys, etc.
